You are in charge of selecting a play for a high school performance. What criteria would you use to select that play? How would your criteria differ if you were selecting a play for a Broadway show? I would know that most high schoolers are not as educated in the arts as professionals on Broadway would be. I would want to make sure that the play is simple enough for students as well as age appropriate. However, it would be easier to select a show with bad language or suggestive content if I were to select a show for Broadway. 5. What role does a musical score have in a film? How can the musical score affect a film? The musical score in a film is in a sense another character. If the film is somber and sad the music will portray such emotion.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
